SMPS offers a credential that recognizes your achieved marketing expertise, the Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM).
The CPSM credential is a voluntary certification designed to elevate the professional standards in marketing and influence the future of this vital field. The designation serves as a mark of distinction – a CPSM is recognized as an individual who has met a rigorous standard of experience and expertise in marketing professional services.
SMPS Boston is committed to helping its members become CPSMs by offering scholarships and study groups.
The CPSM Study Group is held once a year to help CPSM candidates study for the CPSM exam. The study group is designed to provide the study support you need to pass the exam including open discussion, learning activities and mock exams. Each session is led by a CPSM. There are eight sessions in all and the study group will cover all six domains of practice. Our goal is to get you ready to take (and pass) the CPSM exam.
We understand that not all firms are willing to pay for their employees to take the exam. Because of this SMPS Boston offers multiple scholarships each year for members who need help covering the cost of the exam. Applicants must be a SMPS Boston member, be eligible to take the exam, participate in the yearly study group, and must take the exam within three months of submitting the application.
